Giants exercise fifth-year option on Odell Beckham Jr.


  • In a move that felt inevitable, former LSU Tiger Odell Beckham Jr. had his fifth-year option exercised Monday. Since he entered the league in 2014, Beckham has never ranked outside of the top five in yards per route run — a claim only Julio Jones and A.J. Green can also make.
  • Beckham has dropped just 16 of 309 catchable passes thrown his way for a drop rate of 5.18 percent.
  • He has the versatility to work from any alignment, running 19.9 percent of his career routes from the slot, scoring 7 TDs and averaging 2.17 YPRR.
  • On his 28 receptions traveling 20-plus yards in the air, he has scored 10 touchdowns.
